Hello everyone!!

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the beautiful rainbows after it rains! Everything glistens with water droplets and the air smells so clean and fresh.

My card today feature this sweet little gnome from Digi Doodle Studios pairable set called Springing up Gnomies. She is out enjoying mother nature at her finest.

I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~

Hair: E55, E53, E51

Oranges: YR07, YR04, Y38, Y35

The rainbow die pieces were cut out of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and were colored with Copics.

Once I had the rainbow pieces all colored I taped them together from the backside using removeable Scotch Tape. I then splattered the piece with white and gray craft paint that was diluted with water and left it to dry. Once the pieces were dry I glued them to the card base.

The super cute rainbow card die is from Simon Says Stamp and the sun die is from Lawn Fawn.

Hello everyone!

For all those who I hold dear to my heart…ewe are wooly special to me!

For my design team project for Digi Doodle Studios I chose to work with the ‘Wooly Lambs‘ pairables digi stamp set again. So much cuteness!

Just poppin’ up to say hello

Hello my froggy friends!

This sweet image from Digi Doodle Studios is part of the Pond Life Pairables Digi Stamp Set.  The paper is from the digital set called On the Pond.

I absolutely love this adorable digi stamp set!  I had the image of a little boy stuffing frogs in his pockets and thought this card design would be perfect.

I printed these adorable little frogs on X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following Copic Markers.

Eyes:  BV20, BG70, B000, Colorless Blender

just poppin up to say hello2

I started with an idea I found on Pinterest, but couldn’t find an SVG file that was quite what I was looking for.  I have the mindset…if there is a will, there is a way.  So…I opened up my Silhouette software and got to work creating.  I however, wasn’t prepared for the hours involved since this is the first file I created…lol

The card base is A2 size – top folding.

just poppin up to say hello1

I love, love, love the digi paper, but it was a little too dark for the frogs to stand out.  To make the paper lighter I brought it into Photoshop and changed the opacity to 60%.  This leaves all the colors the same, but just lightens it up.
